I am working on a house where I want to create a weatherboard look for the outside walls. I'm not certain the best way to go about this.
Currently I'm using the horizontal side of a 1x2 profile brick:
Which gives the following appearance:
I am wondering though if there are any better techniques to create the weatherboard look:
It seems that the 1x2 profile brick has its ridges roughly twice as dense as a true weatherboard exterior.
One advantage of these profile bricks is that their reverse side gives the interior a VJ (tongue and groove) look, which is the interior look of the house that I am trying to model.
However, the lack of anything larger than 1x2 and the overly dense ridges means that I'm leaning towards looking for other options.
